Ah, looks like the Conectiva package doesn't include uuidP.h, which
is why I didn't find it.  Debian/Potato doesn't have it either.
My RH box is switched off, but I'd be willing to make a bet...

This is going to cause lots of pain :(  (independently of libparted,
since we can't use libuuid here, because intel defined it as
little endian, not big-endian as the relevant RFC defines...)

Anyway, a pack-type thing looks reasonable.  Just, the rest of
libparted does the opposite... (motivation: pack/unpack can be
a PITA for incremental update of ondisk structures, and caching,

Consistency is nice, but it doesn't really bother me that much
either way.
